1. Muslim Brotherhood upset at terrorist-group designation by Egyptian Government.

“This is an attempt to frame the Brotherhood,” he claimed.

Wednesday’s designation of the Muslim Brotherhood as a terrorist organization came one day after a deadly attack on a security building in the city of Mansoura killed 14 people and wounded more than 100 others.

2. Phyllis Chesler: Honor Killings in the West and the God of Poetic Justice

On December 4th, Canadian Assistant Crown Prosecutor, Gerard Laarhuis, spoke about this high-profile case at Ayaan Hirsi Ali’s Conference on Honor Violence in New York City. He confirmed that the Shafia daughters, who ranged in age from thirteen to nineteen, were viewed as “whores” by their parents and brother. Why?

The girls believed they were living in Canada. Zainab did not want to marry her first cousin but someone of her own choosing. Their parents and brother believed that Afghans must behave as if they are still living in Afghanistan no matter where they are, geographically.

3. Salafist Organization Claims Deadly Egypt Attack

December 25 2013: A Salafist organization in Egypt on Tuesday claimed responsibility for a deadly attack on a security building in the city of Mansoura that killed 14 people and wounded more than 100 others, Al-Arabiya reported.

“Dakahlia Security Directorate was attacked and the operation was carried out successfully thanks be to God and to our Jihadist brothers,” the report quoted the Twitter account of the group, Ansar Bayt al-Maqdis, as having said.

4. North Korea threatens to strike South ‘without notice,’ sends warning via fax

(I have two questions about this one. A: Isn’t this statement notice of an attack itself? and B: Does South Korea still have a fax machine? I don’t even see those in landfills anymore)

The South Korean government reportedly responded to Pyonghang’s threats by sending a fax to that promised “resolute punishment” in response to any provocation from the North.

(Oh I guess they do. Must be the same one the UN uses to send very angry letters)

5. Iraqi Catholic leader asks West: ‘If they kill us all, will you do something then?’

(I think I can answer that for him. ‘No.’)

6. Most European Muslims want sharia

the situation is worst in Austria. 73 percent of Austrian Muslims of Turkish and Moroccan descent consider sharia to be more important than secular laws, 70 percent think there is only one correct interpretation of the Koran and 76 percent want Muslims to return to their Islamic roots.

(Europe is once again begging for a strong man to get them out of their own mess. Typically the solution is worse than the disease. If only they would behave rationally now. If it isn’t too late already)

7. Invisibility cloak on the horizon! (Even if you are wearing thick glasses)

Thank you Richard, M, Fjordman and all who sent in materials. Getting slowly back up to speed.

  1. Most of the links are showing the world the Moslems want to make, the last one shows the world the west wants to make, one in which scientific miracles preserve life.

  2. Richard and to illustrate your point, if muslims ever get ahold of the invisibility cloak you know they will use it to make more effective rape gangs and to better hide explosives up their arse.

  3. US secretly sends Hellfire missiles, drones to Iraq

    In an attempt to beat back gains by Al-Qaeda-linked insurgents, the United States is moving “dozens” of Hellfire missiles and surveillance drones into Iraq.

    According to a report by The New York Times, the decision comes after Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri Kamal al-Maliki requested help from US President Barack Obama during a meeting in Washington last month.

    The situation in Iraq has become a serious concern over the last year, as insurgents from the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria – Al-Qaeda’s regional affiliate – spread through western and northern parts of the country, as well as nearby Syria. More than 8,000 Iraqis have been killed in 2013. That figure includes three bombings that killed nearly 40 people on Christmas Day.

    […]For its part, the Obama administration has stated that the current shipment of military supplies will be helpful because Iraq has essentially used up its cache of missiles, has no real air presence, and has little surveillance capability.

    Other plans to provide Iraq with supplies have also stalled in Congress, where a bill to lease and sell the country’s Apache helicopter gunships to Baghdad is languishing among concern that Maliki would use them to bully his political rivals. In the absence of American action, Maliki has purchased MI-35 helicopters from Russia.

    Since the departure of US forces in 2011, Al-Qaeda has been able to re-establish its presence in Iraq by feeding off of Sunni resentment towards Maliki’s Shiite government. Through its base in Syria, the insurgents are able to deploy nearly 40 suicide bombers a month against Iraqi Shiites and Sunnis unwilling to fall under their rule.

  4. NYT- U.S. Sends Arms to Aid Iraq Fight With Extremists

    WASHINGTON — The United States is quietly rushing dozens of Hellfire missiles and low-tech surveillance drones to Iraq to help government forces combat an explosion of violence by a Qaeda-backed insurgency that is gaining territory in both western Iraq and neighboring Syria.

    […]The surge in violence stands in sharp contrast to earlier assurances from senior Obama administration officials that Iraq was on the right path, despite the failure of American and Iraqi officials in 2011 to negotiate an agreement for a limited number of United States forces to remain in Iraq.

    […] Iraq’s foreign minister has floated the idea of having American-operated, armed Predator or Reaper drones respond to the expanding militant network. But Mr. Maliki, who is positioning himself to run for a third term as prime minister and who is sensitive to nationalist sentiment at home, has not formally requested such intervention.

    The idea of carrying out such drone attacks, which might prompt the question of whether the Obama administration succeeded in bringing the Iraq war to what the president has called a “responsible end,” also appears to have no support in the White House.

    […]For now, the new lethal aid from the United States, which Iraq is buying, includes a shipment of 75 Hellfire missiles, delivered to Iraq last week. The weapons are strapped beneath the wings of small Cessna turboprop planes, and fired at militant camps with the C.I.A. secretly providing targeting assistance.

    In addition, 10 ScanEagle reconnaissance drones are expected to be delivered to Iraq by March. They are smaller cousins of the larger, more capable Predators that used to fly over Iraq.

    […]The Obama administration has given three sensor-laden Aerostat balloons to the Iraqi government, provided three additional reconnaissance helicopters to the Iraqi military and is planning to send 48 Raven reconnaissance drones before the end of 2014. And the United States is planning to deliver next fall the first of the F-16 fighters Iraq has bought.

  5. Q: “We sometimes wonder, if they kill us all, what would be the reaction of Christians in the West? Would they do something then?”
    A: Yes. Been there, done that.

    They will publish horrifying reports, devastating photos, and documentaries that name names. There will most certainly be a War Crimes Tribunal, although the Pope may instead promote his preference for a “time for healing”. Which may indeed be wise as there are so many sides to the story. “Equal time” may reveal embarrassed Christians, after all.

    There will be no end to poignant memoirs, floods of fiction [genre: coming-of-age in time-of- war], perhaps even a Nobel Prize for a distinguished survivor-poet- activist. Frenzied teams will attempt to record every oral history to the last survivor.

    At the same time, Muslims will weep as they have flashbacks to those terrible days. These heroes to a generation are venerated for their disfiguring wounds. So too are the emotional cripples.They did what they had to do, but many were left incapacitated by PTSD-Jihadi, a unique stigmata.

    As memorials spring up, they will inevitably be vandalized. Muslims will be encouraged to tell their story. [… Christian monopolies on education, business, the professions provoked the Autochthonous Umma to violence. … Missionaries — who “stank in the nostrils of Allah” — fed pork to the hungry and inoculated the sick with evil jinn and AIDs. No means were too vile to induce children to commit apostasy.]

    These controversies will yield voluminous material for academics in all the best universities. Funding lavish, competition keen, because this is how history is made.

    History has appurtenances.

    Soon museums in Iraq, Egypt, Syria, etc. will boast of curated collections of art, manuscripts, and assorted memorabilia from the millennia when Christianity was extant. These sites will be promoted to both scholars and tourists, packaged nostalgia trips. They’ll return with charming handicrafts, perhaps even a souvenir crucifix, rendered finally halal by imams friendly to the tourist trade.

  6. The last strongman ought to have been left alone. I’m talking about Napoleon. Ahem ahem.

    Someone like Franco would been acceptable though.
